My MIL just left. A friend of a friend had offered to work on her car since the garage couldn't do it. But then he had some other things he had to do first that he hadn't bothered to mention, and then the part he bought didn't fit, and the store didn't have the one that would fit... But it's fixed and she's on the road.

I should point out that the only reason I didn't want her here for so long is that the house is kind of overfull with 7 people in it. Zoe alone is like having 3 or 4 people around. She's loud and moves a lot and she fills a room. It's very strange, but it's true. So while I get along great with Scott's mom in general, it's hard when we're all here for an extended period. Besides, we only have one bathroom! But, she did clean my kitchen yesterday for me, which was wonderful. And Quinn seemed very happy to have her here. He's always loved her, but it was nice for him to just get to spend some time with her on his own turf. He wasn't busy raiding her closet for toys or trying to get all the pots and pans out of her cabinets, so he didn't have as many new and interesting things distracting him the way he does at her house. He sang her songs and gave her hugs and flirted a lot. He was sad to see her go.

So, tomorrow I'll try to write a productive post. Maybe something about saving money, or maybe pics of the kids. Heck, I can always do both. But for today, I'm just gonna stretch out and enjoy the space.
